Appeal Court Reserves Judgment In Nnamdi Kanu’s Suit Against FG

The Court of Appeal Abuja on Tuesday reserved judgment in an appeal filed by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu is asking the appellate court to quash the terrorism and treasonable felony charges preferred against him by the Federal Government.

The IPOB leader, who is currently facing trial before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja is praying the court to review the April 8 ruling of the trial court which struck out only eight out of the 15-count charge.

He said the charge FG entered against him had no basis in law.

The IPOB leader is also asking the court to order his release on bail, pending the determination of his appeal.

The appeal was initially fixed for October 11, but based on an application the embattled IPOB leader filed for abridgment of time, the appellate court brought the matter forward for hearing.
